John Lowery, Chief Executive Officer & Founder, Applied Innovation
Over 35 years ago, John Lowery began his career in the office technology industry by founding Applied Innovation with only 8 employees. Today, Applied has 500+ employees and multiple locations. John’s favorite part about being a CEO? Seeing the employees grow and become the best versions of themselves. And the biggest challenge? Learning how to navigate a growing company.
One of John’s best kept secrets to owning and running a family business comes from his mindset, “We want to always be a growing company. We don’t want to be an aging company. So, we can’t tell you exactly what the future will be, but we know one thing for sure: we always have to keep reinventing ourselves.”
